THE MARKET - NEW CURRENTS

The Rising Tide:

ACTARON provides innovative marine electric power-train solutions – propulsion and auxiliaries’ i.e. onboard appliances. In a number of niche applications the boat building and shipping industry is transitioning to all-electric vessels. The benefits will be enhance ship functionally, reliability, reduced crew size—and lowered ship life-cycle costs.

ACTARON ELECTRIC POWERTRAIN ENGINEERING

Electric power-trains enable many applications:

  • Vessels to cruise electrically at low or medium speed into the harbor at zero emissions.
  • The vessel could recharge the batteries utilizing onshore power and / or solar power.
  • The offshore drilling industry where flammable gases and vapor are present
  • Below the waterline submersible applications
  • Vessel operation in ecologically sensitive areas such as drinking water lakes or nature reserve

SHIP-TO-SHORE - IEC/ISO/IEEE 80005-1

ACTARON provides support for the choice and qualification of suitable storage concepts that is capable of bi-directional interaction with the power grid. This capability provides local grid stabilization (smart grid compatible) and if required provide temporary or emergency power supply for offshore facilities.

IEC/ISO/IEEE 80005-1: The IEC recent newly published International Standard for ship-to-shore power. Increasingly, ports are installing HVSC (High Voltage Shore Connection) systems to supply electric power to berthed ships to meet tighter harmful emission limits”:

  • shore-to-ship connection and interface equipment
  • transformers/reactors
  • semiconductor/rotating convertors
  • ship distribution systems
  • control, monitoring, interlocking and power management systems
